From all the accounts floating around, I'm pretty sure the lobster grilling took place; never heard about the fish episode though.

From Wikipedia entry on the Boston Garden:

American rock band The Grateful Dead performed at the Boston Garden more times than any other band, with 24 performances from 1970 to 1994 (as an opener or middle of bill or headliner), and were intended to be the last band to play the Garden, with six shows scheduled for September 1995, which were cancelled due to the death of Jerry Garcia on August 9, 1995. The Dead were banned from the Garden for a number of years because they were caught grilling lobsters on a fire escape before a performance. The Grateful Dead have released Dick's Picks Volume 12 & 17 from performances at the Garden on 6–28–1974 and 9–25–1991.

Gotta love Wikipedia. Pretty sure the Dead didn't play the Gahden till '73.

4/2/73 is first that I've found so far (at least as a headliner).

Right. In fact '73 was the year, generally speaking, when their venues of choice morphed into the larger hockey-rink type scenes.
